    TULSA, Okla. - An investigation is underway to determine how a box full of evidence ended up in a Glenpool police station dumpster.

    Police said the evidence was accidentally thrown away. City officials also said the incident appears to be a mistake, but have asked for evaluation from the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office.

    Officials said on Friday a routine clean-up was underway inside a property room at the police station. A box containing police documents was accidentally thrown away with some trash, they said.

    They did not reveal the contents of the box, but said the documents were about a decade old.

    All of the documents were recovered, undamaged, after officials realized what happened.
